The Civil War: Episode 7 – Most Hallowed Ground (1864) | Ken Burns Documentary

This is one of the better episodes, I think.  There are very few inaccuracies, and the visuals and commentary are still very compelling.  Shelby Foote’s infatuation with Nathan Bedford Forrest and his Lost Cause belief “the North fought that war with one hand tied behind its back” notwithstanding, most of the episode is really good.
